Final steps in the purchase of the
chemical auto truck were taken by the
city council at their meeting Friday
night of last week and Monday night of
tine week. A resolution was passed
transferring 33,000 from the water works
fund to the special fire protection fund,
and an ordinance, which had been read
at a previous meeting, providing for the
purchase of the truck, placed on its linal
passage, and carried. The Monday
evening meeting was for the purpose of
preparing a notice to bidders for the
truck, and the elerk wbb instructed to
prepare specifications for all prospective
bidders. It is quite probable that tnc
truck will be purchased and in eeryice
within the net few months, and Colum
bus will then have a tire lighting equip
ment equal to any of the towns of its
size in the state. Besides providing for
the purchase of the truck the council
killed the ordinance regulating the mov
ing picture shows. An application for
license hh a house mover was presented
by Loiiirt Scbroeder. but as it was not
accompanied by a bond, no action was
taken. The chief of police reported
that he had served the notice on the
Union Pacific railroad company, request
ing them to place Hn arc light at the Lew
jb street crossing. On account of the
exce-sive amount of work in the office of
wnter eommissoner, P. J. McCaffrey, the

be raised to 8U0 per year, and the re-

Wednesday evening from Mobile, Ala.,
where he attended the Superintendents'
National meeting. The Nebraska party
which numbered forty, traveled from
Lincoln to Mobile and return in a speci

the best of its kind held in a number of
years, was of special interest to Nebras
ka people from the fact that it was pre
sided over by Superintendent Davidson
or the Omaha schools.
Several of the new passenger locomo

the exception of the capacity of the
tanks, which will hold 9,000 gBllons of
water instead of 7,000 gallons, and this
according, to the reports in the dailies,
will enable the company to run their
through trains from Omaha to Colum

H. Brick, and bis assistants, have been
busy placing the instrument in position

It is a two manual and pedal organ and
baa nine seta of pipes, or a total of 579
pipes. An electric motor operates the
fans which supplies the compressed air,

this instrument, and now that they have
realized their hopes, they are more than
pleased. After Easter an organ concert
will be given and will no doubt be fol

At the meeting of the boBrd of super
visors last week the question of appro
priating money from the inheritance tax
fund for permanent roads was brought
up, and after gctliug an opinion from the
county attorney regarding it, the follow

the request of the Commercial club.
Relative to the application of the com
mittee representing the Commercial
Club of the city of Columbus, presented
to the board of supervisors at their see
Bion of January 11, 1911, asking the board
to set aside from the Inheritance Tax
fund the sum of $800.00 for the purpose
of building a permanent highway be

was introduced by Suirvisor Wilson:
Be it resolved that the application of

this week, the request of the Columbus
Commercial club for assistance to build
a permanent road between the Loup and
Platte river bridge, was presented by
the committee appointed by the club.
Residents of the township were there to

report of the amount of money expended
on this portion of the road, without any
good resulte, convinced those present
that the township should do their snare.
and 100 was voted for that purpose.
The total now available Tor the pro

One of the vital questions before the
church todsy "ib recreation. One man
has said let me control the recreation of
n ...immunity and I will at the same
time control the morals of that com
munity. The man may have put it a
tritle strong, but surely he has much
truth on his side.
In onr thinking of recreation, how
ever, its good and bad, we should never
forget that God had laid the ground of
r.rrHtmn in man's nature. All higher
animals manifest the play capacity. The
ohild comes from its play as tired as the
man from his industries, or the night
he tosses and talks in his sleep because
he has overworked an element of hiB
being. To youth pleasure is very grat
ifying. The blood is in the beet fix; the
nerve cells are freehand tingling: the
life is full of delicione enthusiasm; the
bones suple; the eyes bright and in
cheeks aglow and the body springy. We
want more rather than less recreation.
We want it distinctly understood that
morality is not a campaign of suppres
sion; that goodness is not another way
or spelling wretchedness; that a clean
conscience and a long face are not nec
